Making plastics more circular to avoid plastic littering into the environment is a priority for the European Union.
Recycling more plastics is a key solution. The Circular Plastics Alliance gathers key stakeholders in the plastics value chains to promote new voluntary action by industry for more recycled plastics. The Circular Plastics Alliance wants to ensure that 10 million tons of recycled plastics find their way into new European products by 2025.
The European Commission launched the Circular Plastics Alliance on 11 December 2018 with the support of First Vice-President Frans Timmermans and Vice-President Jyrki Katainen. 30 stakeholder organisations have already joined the Alliance and gathered for the first meeting of the Circular Plastics Alliance on 5 February 2019 in Brussels.
